Created by Kitaro in collaboration with Astronomy Professor Kazunari Shibata, the entire DVD production of Kojiki and the Universe was developed using modern film editing techniques, as well as state-of-the-art hardware and software. In Japanese mythology, Kojiki is a story closely related to evolution of the universe. It describes the origin of Heaven, Earth and the creation of the Gods. Utilizing Kitaro’s “Kojiki” score as the soundtrack, “Kojiki and The Universe” is a chronicle of astronomical research as well as a beautiful introduction to modern astronomy for everyone.

Also released on April 21st, Kitaro’s Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Volume 5 follows the highly acclaimed Volumes 1-4 of the series, all of which have earned the artist Grammy nominations.

Having received Grammy nomination for volumes 1-4, Volume 5 is presented by Kitaro’s long- time label, the Domo Music Group. The Ku-Kai series concept arose after the global events on the fateful day of September 11, 2001. Kitaro was traveling on a jet from Japan to Los Angeles when the transcontinental flight was diverted to Hawaii for 5 days due to the tragedy. It was during this time of disbelief and uncertainty that Kitaro envisioned the Ku-Kai series as a means of uniting the world through music embracing his frequently referenced universal message of peace.

The Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai series is an earthly voyage that transports the listener to the eighty-eight sacred temples located on Shikoku Island in Japan, ancestral home of the beloved Buddhist holy man Ku-kai. The music, which pays homage to the true to life excursion made over 1100 years ago on Shikoku Island endures to this day. Each track on the album revolves around the unique bell sound from the individual temples, using actual sampling and Kitaro’s inspired musical interpretations and distillations of their essences.

The Ku-Kai series is comprised of “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 1” in 2003, “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 2” in 2005, “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 3” in 2007, and “Sacred Journey Of Ku-Kai Vol. 4” in 2010. The global admiration for Kitaro and his music that unites the world is, of all things, real and constant.

  36. Tim Taylor says:

    I have to say I’m a huge Kitaro fan. I have all his cds and have now seen him 3 times in concert. The third being the first date of the Kojiki and the Universe tour (La Jolla, Ca). I was extremely disappointed in the show. The beginning was good when the "band" ( I put it in quotes because it was another keyboard player, a violinist ang on one sone some drummers) performed. And I found the Japanese dancer to be good. But when the "band" left the stage for the Universe part of the show and Kitaro played keys along with taped music (!) I felt completely cheated. And it was boring. The other two times I saw him were fantastic (the original Kojiki tour and the Thinking of You tour)… An energetic band with great performances in both cases. This was not the kitaro I remember. A waste of money.

  37. abcd says:

  42. JOHN DEFABIO says:

    i am so Frustrated that Kitaro does not come to the eastern US ,i seen him in NY every time , But now its been TOO Long …Not Fair, He Has fans this part of the country also ..I wish there was some kind of way i can tell him …I have been a fan for 28 years !!!! Disappointed !!!!Seems like He doesn’t care about this side of the USA … I am sure he has tons of fans here that would love to see him…
